Welcome to the digital version of my scholarly portfolio. I am an Associate Professor in the Writing, Rhetoric, and Communication program and Director of the First-Year Seminar program at Transylvania University in Lexington, KY where teach classes such as Digital Rhetoric, Feminist Rhetoric, Business Writing, and Writing for/with Nonprofits.
My primary scholarly interests lie at the intersection of feminist rhetorics and digital rhetorics and literacies. In both my teaching and research, I am interested in conceptions of community and practices of community engagement—and especially in the ways writing and language (and assumptions about people’s language) affect community engagement.
Previously, I have served as Co-Director or Transylvania’s Digital Liberal Arts initiative, mentored graduate teaching assistants, assisted the director and Placement Coordinator in Bowling Green State University’s General Studies Writing program, and worked in writing centers (both face-to-face and online).
My pronouns are she/her/hers.
